Photoshop: Right-clicking no longer identifies the layer being pointed at

right-clicking on an item in the working area no longer identifies the layer being pointed at, but rather, shows a long list of nearly all the layers. This function worked well in CS3 but is now "broken" in CS5

Mac OS 10.6.8, PhotoShop 12.0. Adobe Application Manager does not "see" any available updates for PhotoShop that I can download.

Ahh. Yeah, you need to get 12.0.4 installed. That would solve your problems.

Can you try downloading and installing from here:

Rather odd: downloading and running the updater only brought me back to the Adobe Application Manager, which again told me my apps were up to date.

In digging deeper I noticed that all of the CS apps were *unchecked* for notifications in the preferences which was probably why the app wouldn't update CS for me. After checking them updates were found, downloaded, and installed.

Probably that message should be changed from "all of your applications are currently up-to-date" to "you have chosen not to be notified of updates. {click here to change your settings}" or similar.

For now, though, the issue at hand is solved!

Many thanks.

Excellent. Thanks. Is your text double-click issue solved as well by the update?

Sadly it is not. Early tests of 12.0.4 show that double-clicking text will include the word plus all spaces after it. Highlighting *is* stopped at punctuation such as colons, semicolons, exclamations. If you have a hyphenated-word double-clicking it will highlight both-words *plus* any spaces after it.
